Seeking Compromise? Mediation through the Eyes of Conflict Parties
Adopts an empathetic view on mediation from the perspective of conflict parties who may or may not choose to engage in it. Addressing five crucial questions - why, when, where and from whom third-party mediation might be sought, and what results are expected of it - the authors draw up recommendations for those trying to offer or support mediation processes. They put special emphasis on the role of insider mediators and the need for multi-partiality.
